Qinwen Zheng has had an impressive year, with 2022 being the first year where she has appeared in WTA tour level competitions consisntely. She had an electric start in Australia, losing in the semi finals in Melbourne and then reaching the second round at the Australian Open. Soon after she dominated at a high level ITF event in Orlando, dropping just 15 games in 5 matches.
Soon after she won her first ever WTA title on the clay in Valencia. She struggled on the grass, but has managed to get into some form after some impressive wins in Toronto earlier this month – beating Ons Jabeur and Bianca Andreescu.

Jelena Ostapenko has had a frustrating time at the US Open, exiting in the third round every time she’s played. The Latvian has had an interesting season so far, winning in Dubai where she was absolutely unplayable at times. She beat Swiatek, Kvitova, Halep and Kudermetova to win. She then soon after went to the semi finals in Doha, but then went on a losing streak, losing six matches out of eight. She reignited her form in Eastbourne where she made the finals, but has since struggled again. More recently, losing to Riske and Keys.
The pair have never faced each other.
I have this match up slightly closer to a pick’em, and I can easily see this going three sets. If we look at the numbers game, 2.38 is great value considering the money line odds are 2.0-1 and 1.8-1.85.
